Thomas is a geologist in the RawMin-Team, focusing on the characterization of geochemistry and mineralogy of hard rocks (host rocks and ores) and clay deposits. His major experiences are in the support of the brick and tile industry and in the field of rare earth element and gold deposits.
Thomas, after finishing his theses about a rare earth element occurrence in central Turkey at the Technical University in Munich, founded a start up company Geoact GmbH in 1992. From 1996 Thomas worked as a consultant on his own dealing with clay deposits in Europe from prospecting, exploration up to development support in questions of optimation of preparation plants, furnace modulations and product lines oft he brick and tile industry. He is also installed as an amicus curiae for legal proceedings by the chamber of industry and commerce (Munich and Upper Bavaria).
Further projects of his consultancy have been in the work fields of high purity quartz in Saudi Arabia, rare earth element deposit in Madagascar and Nb-Ta-project in Nigeria.
During his research fellowship at the Technical University he had the opportunity to be a part of investigations of international gold projects in China, Sudan and Turkey as well as rare earth element and platinum projects in Turkey.

Our company’s success is defined by your personal success. You are more than just our client - you are our partner.

We aim to offer best-in-class advice on the implementation and financing of raw materials projects.

icon competence


Our competence results from many years of successful consultancy in many raw material projects in a market of high volatility demanding flexibility, innovative ideas and new approaches. Our in-house competence and our national and international business relations guaranties highest quality standards at every stage of the raw material product chain.

icon sustainability


We are convinced that long-term economic success can only be achieved through sustainable operation that include e. g. the timely start of exploration and prospection in order to find ore deposits that are suitable to replace that under exhaustion, the reclamation of mine areas and the development of on-site social projects.

icon reliability


For us reliability to our partners is based in the truth of knowledge. This means that all parties involved in a project will get clear and valid consultancy and information in an appropriate time period about all parameters necessary for the important decisions from starting a project through all process steps. We are trained and used to be focused on a defined subject and to be in a flexible modus for our customers, too.

icon safety


In the raw material world of generally high risks one of our most important items is the safety thinking in a lot of different ways. Safety of the information and data, safety for environmental and social values and last but not least safety of capital and financial resources of our clients are always in our mind.

icon responsibility


The projects in our working areas, besides the competence and financial core aspects, will be charged with keen eyes on the principles of the United Nations specifications, protection of environment and respecting human rights. Profits and win-win situations can be achieved by global rules and standards only.

icon confidence


With our offered holistic concepts regarding mining and raw material projects we attempt to gain confidence with respect to environmental fears and give our best to realise sustainable projects. The gain of confidence between all participants in projects is one of the main subjects, which are responsible for the success of those. The creation and care of confidence is an important part in the projects accompanied by us.
